          You will need matte board and a matte cutter. two fairly expensive items, that if you do not have your work will end up looking crappy. And if you buy a cheep matte cutter your work will end up looking like pooooo!

          I would just take it somewhere and have it mounted or invest ($300-500) in a matte cutting system and learn to do it well, it will take some practice!

          good luck

            dang that sucks. See in my high school the teacher thought us how to do it,but of course we were using the schools materials and equipment.





            I still would like to learn,but for now.....I think I'll take it some where else


            thanks.

              The rips today are very robust. It isn't often we get a crash. It's more like, you know, standing there, tapping your foot and looking at your watch thinking how many other projects you could be doing...

              Do you understand the difference between raster and vector? Resolution in vector images is a non-issue since they're scalable. Vector images aren't made of pixels like raster images, so there's really...

              Just my opinion, but I think one of the most valuable parts of any design schooling is the interaction and feedback one gets from fellow students and instructors. For that matter, I'll go so far as to...

              Yeah, it's a common question that's asked here. In the forum search feature, try searching for "What computer do I need". You'll find lots of replies.
